Major Natural Gas Pipelines in the United States (circa 2009)
The words of Sara Mehalick who barricaded the front entrance of Vermont Gas today:
"Today I’m taking action because Vermont Gas is intent upon shackling our communities to fossil fuels, and condemning us to irreversible climate change. We have a responsibility to the communities whose land, water, and air are being poisoned by fracking, and we’re determined to make sure that this fracked gas pipeline does not move forward. Today we’re here to tell Vermont Gas to cancel their construction plans, or expect to see growing resistance."
Spectra Energy is expanding their pipeline network so that more fracked natural gas can be transported and ultimately exported out of the country.
All of these projects are set to be in service by 2017. The clock is ticking. It’s time to Ban Fracking and Stop Spectra.
We can Stop Cove Point from becoming a fracked gas export terminal - join the Energy Exports Action Camp in Maryland, June 2-9th
